Jane Fairburn's endorsement statement
Is it enough for Torontonians to content ourselves that while air traffic rises dramatically, that while substantial emissions are spewed into the air and the lake from the Scarborough Bluffs to Etobicoke Creek, that while Toronto Bay is further filled with concrete, and supporting infrastructure is erected along the edge of the water, that the jets are reportedly “quiet”? A wolf is still a wolf, even when all decked out in sheep’s clothing. Porter Airlines, your plan is too greedy – the waterfront, from the Rouge River to Etobicoke Creek, is a shared trust and our most valuable public asset. Let’s not blow this historic opportunity to reconnect with Lake Ontario, and reinvest in Toronto’s proud waterfront heritage.
